The new slate of ministers for Giuseppe Conte’s second stint as Italy’s prime minister was formally sworn in this Thursday by Italian President Sergio Mattarella, bringing the unlikely coalition between Italian populists and an old-guard center-left party a step away from power. The 21-minister slate includes ten members of the populist Five-Star Movement, nine from the center-left Democratic Party, and one from the small, liberal Free and Equal party, and one unaligned technocrat. The only holdout from the previous government will be Giuseppe Conte, who will have his second stint as prime minister.
